Tired of wearing your old jeans and workout clothes to the playground? To inspire you, here are seven essential pieces that every mom should consider having in her closet. Not only are they stylish, they are incredibly comfortable and practical too! And at the end of the day, when you’re chasing after your toddler, comfort matters most!
How brilliant is this long sleeve sweatshirt by Helmut Lang? With its funnel collar, hook and eye closure, off-center zipper and diagonal hem line, it makes for a unique replacement to your workout hoodie. Update: We just spotted the sweatshirt on sale for $98, but it will probably sell out fast (the link has been updated)!
For extra warmth and layering, why not wear a compression tank such as this Yummie Tummie Stella tank? We may as well “sculpt” and hold in our figures while looking chic all at the same time.
Slim fit and streamlined, DL1961′s Emma Legging Jeans are perfect for the playground or for date night. The front faux pockets don’t add any unwanted bulk to an area that we may already be sensitive about.
Just because you are running from playground to play group, doesn’t mean that you have to wear your sneakers. Try dressing up your look with a pair of ballet flats. The Maria Sharapova Air Bacara Ballet Flat by Cole Haan has a cushioned foot bed and uses a Nike Air technology rubber pod in the sole for extra comfort.
The Tumi “Voyageur Capri” is the perfect crossbody bag when you are ready to switch out your diaper bag and lighten up your load. The nylon fabric is easy to clean, convenient to carry around and just large enough to fit your keys, wallet, snacks and sanitary wipes.
Look for a cuff such as this one to complete your look by infusing some texture and dimension.
And don’t forget to cover up your weary eyes with a pair of chic sunglasses—the easiest way to disguise your dark rings while looking super stylish at the same time.
